Leading Utilities Management Software in the Cloud

The Urbanise Utilities platform is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) micro-utility solution for the residential and commercial property markets. By combining the benefits provided by today’s cloud and smart metering technologies, we’ve built a world-class platform which provides a proven solution for automating the labour-intensive tasks associated with utility meter reading, managing utility metered networks and collecting utility income from tenants and residents.

We empower metering companies, utility operators and divisions, as well as property managers to efficiently implement, maintain and manage embedded utility networks for their customers.

Accurate and up-to-date information

Harnessing the features of AMR/AMI smart meter technology, we collect data from multiple vendor’s smart meters, at regular intervals, to process and generate accurate and up-to-date billing information.

Multiple tariffs can be configured through the platform’s advanced tariff engine, thereby accommodating most utility tariff structures, including customs tariffs associated with the sale of renewable energy.

 

Transparent and trusted reporting

Consumers and utility service providers alike get access to information through our mobile app and web portal, thereby gaining full transparency over their usage, billing information and payment history.

Additional value and enhanced reporting are provided through the analytics engine and customisable management dashboards.

 

Automated management and administration

Manual and labour-intensive tasks associated with meter reading, fault finding, common property reconciliations, bill presentment and collection of utility income is fully automated through our platform.

Multi-tenanted and centralised customer account management provides a scalable solution for managing utilities across large property portfolios.
